5th Annual Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Walk and 5K Run
Middleburg Bank is proud to support the 5th Annual Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Walk and 5K Run on October 9.
One of the great things about being a community bank is having the opportunity to be involved first hand in our communities. This local involvement is so important to our company that part of our Mission Statement specifically talks about our "contributing to the welfare of our communities."
At Middleburg Bank, our bankers and our company play an active role on boards, in schools and community groups. The company provides financial support to more than 100 civic and nonprofit organizations and more than 150 individual employees generously give their own time and money to worthwhile organizations. We work hard to partner with local groups that are helping to make our communities a better place to live and work.
One such group is the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation. Created in 2007, the Foundation is dedicated to helping fight breast cancer in our local communities and has a three-year goal to raise and grant $1,000,000 to fight breast cancer right here in our area.
This year, Middleburg Bank is once again proud to be the Grand Sponsor of the 5th Annual Cherry Blossom Walk and 5K Run for Breast Cancer. The Walk and 5K Run is one of the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation's major fund-raisers for the year.
While many worthwhile organizations are working to end breast cancer, Middleburg Bank chose to support the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation because the money they raise stays right here in our communities, helping support local healthcare providers as well as breast cancer patients and their families. Last year, the Walk and 5K Runs raised over $120,000 that went to support local organizations such as:
- Inova Loudoun Hospital
- FISH, Middleburg
- Loudoun Community Health Center, Leesburg
- Blue Ridge Hospice
- Loudoun Voluntary Caregivers, Leesburg
- Casting for the Cure-Breast Cancer Program
- Fauquier Hospital, Warrenton
- Cherry Blossom Education Program
- 3 B's Foundation
- George Washington University Mobile Digital Mammogram Van
- Breast Cancer Network of Strength
- Georgetown University Lombardi Cancer Institute
This year's Cherry Blossom Walk and 5K Run will take place on Sunday October 9th at 1 pm. There will be three simultaneous events, in Leesburg, Middleburg and Warrenton. With these three concurrent Walks and 5K Runs, more area residents will be able to participate and help raise money for the Foundation.
Please join us as we take part in this worthwhile cause and help those in our communities who are fighting breast cancer. You can pick up registration material in any Middleburg Bank office or you can click here for register for the Walk and 5K Run or to find out more about the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation.
With your help, we can all make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.
